Copied this from my tumblr 'cuz I really wanted something new in my journal space. Enjoy! :D

1. I have a scar on top of each hand, a long one across my left knuckles and small one between the metacarpals of my thumb and forefinger on the right.  Both scars are from my cats’ back feet when they tried to use my hands as a launch pad.  I actually like the scars because long after my cats are gone, I’ll have something to remember them by.

2.  I played alto saxophone as hobby during my school years. My parents, not realizing I still played it, sold my my sax just after I graduated. If I ever got my hands on another one, I’d love to pick it back up again.

3. I was also the only guy in my high school’s Color Guard. I spin a mean flag and rifle.  Though I initially resisted (honest), I ended up dating three of the girls on the team. 

4. My all-time favorite song is “Africa” by Toto. Though Q-Feel’s “Dancing in Heaven (Orbital Bebop)” might dethrone it any minute. Both songs are from 1982, coincidentally.

5.My first job was at a adult video store in Baltimore City. I worked there for three years while training myself in art. The job desensitized me to just about everything.

6. I am allergic to bees and band-aids.

7. I love singing and dancing and I’m actively looking for opportunities to do both more often. For the record, I sing tenor.

8. My first exposure to concept of death was the final scenes in the movie “Amadeus.”  I was 5 years old.

9. I’ve never lost a game of Trivial Pursuit.

10.  I’ve met God.  He’s a kind, hefty, bespectacled, black man with long cornrows, a giant mole on the side of his nose, and the softest hands ever. He owns a barbershop in Ft Meade.  One day, I want to write a short comic about the experience.

That fact about the cat-scratches immediately followed by your choice of musical instruments leads into a rather obvious line about "sax and violence" but I think I'll refrain. ;)

I have a scar above my upper lip that I got from my dog. He's gone now but I will always remember him through this scar :)

Also, never get close to a dog's face whilst he's eating: he'll get angry

I know what you mean about liking the scars as a way to remember. I have one by my left eye I got from my recently deceased cat, Rascal

I imagine you must have some interesting stories from your first job, to say the least

and I look forwards to that short comic o-o  it sounds like it'd be a fun experience to read about XD

I want your hand scars hgg. All I have is this little scar under my knuckle from trying to open a martinelli bottle. Oh well. Amadeus is such a good movie as well, but man that must've been crazy to watch at 5.

I would be interested in #10. And how can you be allergic to band-aids? Is it the adhesive?

I would love to read that short comic described in #10. I hope you get a chance to do that some day. :)

Allergic to band-aids? How is that possible? What do they have that provokes allergy?

(About number 10) You might want to be careful. Tyler Perry might rip that off from you.
